UCD School of Music - where great intellect and virtuosity meet.
As the UCD School of Music enters its second century of teaching, research and service, we continue to build on the leading role it has played in musical education, musical scholarship and the musical life of Ireland since 1914. UCD Music graduates have held key roles in all aspects of Irish musical life and beyond these shores right from the discipline’s infancy in the university. UCD Music graduates have occupied and continue to occupy leading roles in institutions like the Abbey Theatre, the Army School of Music, the Department of Education, RTÉ, the BBC, universities in Ireland, the UK, and beyond, in addition to numerous schools, choirs and musical societies.
At UCD we value ambition, dedication, and passion for music in all its forms: critical reflection on music, performance to the highest professional standards, and engagement with composition through analysis, reflection and the creative process. At UCD School of Music the conversation is ongoing, between great minds and great performers. Often the results are magical. If you would like to be part of that conversation, if you believe you can contribute to its development and if you would like to gain from it, we invite you to explore all that we have to offer. You’ll find information on our degree programmes, faculty, and upcoming events here on our website. We look forward to hearing from you!
